Holy crap - this man is unstoppable, isn't he?!

Tyler Perry has reportedly signed a NEW deal with TBS for a THIRD TV show, a dramedy called For Better or Worse, which will reportedly be based on his Why Did I Get Married? franchise!

The series, which will the flick's original castmembers Michael Jai White and Tasha Smith, has been greenlit for 10 episodes, and if the ratings are impressive enough, 90 more will be ordered!

According to TBS, TNT, and TCM's Executive Vice President and Head of Programming Michael Wright:

“Tyler Perry’s series have been tremendously successful for TBS, helping establish the network as a prime destination for African-American viewers. Given such a remarkable track record, we’re excited for the opportunity to expand our relationship with Tyler Perry and Debmar-Mercury with the new series For Better or Worse.”

Perry continues:

“Even though it will be sad to say goodbye to House of Payne, I’m really looking forward to exploring new territory with For Better or Worse. Working on House of Payne taught me a lot about what it takes to make a successful television series and I’m looking forward to applying that experience to For Better or Worse.”

Here's hoping!

People really LOVE his shows, so we imagine if he just keeps up the good work, he'll have NO problem at all securing those additional 90 episodes!

Best of luck!

Lost Finale Airing All Over The World Simultaneously!

That sneaky smoke monster is taking over the world's airwaves!

In an unprecedented move to prevent illegal internet downloads, the epic, 75 hour long finale of Lost will be aired all over the world at the same time!

Broadcasters in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Israel, Turkey, Canada, and now the UK will be airing the smash series' last episode, appropriately titled The End, at the same time as the US' west coast feed, even though it be in the early morning hours of the following Monday!

The UK Channel Sky1's director of programming Stuart Murphy says of the 5am airing:

"We are proud of the fact that at Sky1 HD we have a long tradition of running all of our US shows as close as possible to their US transmission date. With something as hotly anticipated as the Lost finale, it makes sense to show it at exactly the same time as millions across America will see it."

That's certainly going to be an early day for Losties across the globe - but will it be worth it?? We have a feeling that there is going to be much more left unanswered than people realize!!

What do U think?? Will U be tuning in for the Lost finale, no matter what time it's on??
